If a general election had been held in around October, the winner would have been the largest coalition party, Smer, with 41.5 percent of the votes, according to a recent poll carried out by Median Sk.

The poll, which was carried out between September 28 and November 8 on a sample of 1,621 respondents, showed that the main opposition party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) would have come second on 15.5 percent, with the Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) third on 11.1 percent.

Next came the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), on 8.8 percent, followed by the Slovak National Party (SNS) on 8.4 percent and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) on 5.4 percent. No other party would have reached the 5-percent threshold required to gain seats in Parliament. Most-Hid would have come closest, on 4.1 percent, followed by the Communist Party (KSS) on 2 percent and the recently-formed Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) on 1.6 percent.
